Words of wisdom

Posted on August 12, 2003 at 03:13 PM in Misc | Permalink

An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey and the old man walked.

As they went along they passed some people who remarked it was a shame the old man was walking and the boy was riding. The old man and the boy thought that maybe the critics were right, so they changed places.

Later, they passed some more people that remarked, "What a shame he makes that little boy walk." They then decided they both would walk!

Soon they passed some more people who thought they were stupid to walk when they had a decent donkey to ride. So, they both rode the donkey.

Now they passed some more people that shamed them by saying how awful to see such a load on a poor donkey. The boy and the man said they were probably right, so they decided to carry the donkey.

As they crossed a bridge, they lost their grip on the animal and the donkey fell into the river and drowned.

The moral of the story?
If you try to please everyone, you might as well kiss your ass good-bye.
